He spreaks of PRATTS, and in general of creationists never learning. Buzz gives a jeer often to posts speaking negatively of creationists or their points. So, it didn't really puzzle me, cheers/jeers often follow a pattern, so I tend to check them to find out more about the preferences of the memberhood concerning posts.

It's a good post btw, although I do not share the fatigue myself.(yet)

Re: Post of the year
Seconded, and then some.

Dwise1 has an insider's knowledge and has been in on the debate far longer than almost anyone else I know of, if not anyone else at all around this site. Here he beautifully explains what the whole deal is about.

I started getting involved around 1981. Though I didn't start posting on-line, in CompuServe, until circa 1987. I have seen a lot happen over the years.

Though POM is not for discussion etc, since some wondered why, I'll post a one message explanation. I jeered Caffeine's because the message implicated all creationists in one lump, which is, of course certainly objectionable to evolutionists as well. This happens all to often, imo.

quote:
Creationists never learn!' ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

If you lack the energy to deal with any more creationist nonsense, then stop listening to it. Read something else, or go for a walk, or get pissed, or find a new hobby.


Any active member on this board should be aware that the Buzsaw Hypothesis is unique in many ways from that of most. There are many other creationists of whom the allegations in the message would not apply.

I've read Dwise's entire long discourse on problematic creationists. There's a lot in that discourse of Dwises that I fully agree to, having encountered some of them as a non-conformist to the mainliner YECs. I am not popular among YECs in and out of church circles; in fact as unpopular as I am here, idiologically. I've found it necessary to pretty much stand alone, effectively advocating for an irrifutable rock solid ID Biblical creationist alternative.

ABE: Via research, being fully convinced that The Biblical record is reliable, I agree to Caffeine and Dwise's allegations that here that, for the most part, there is no viable creationist paradigm on origins etc. Therefore it's high time for a viable one to be found and aired. I and other creationist non-conforists should not be lumped together with the majority.

Seconded
Great detailed post by dwise1, glad someone else (and of course, he is not the only one, and with this I praise all) can step up and defend mathematics, which is evidently under attack by a few of the, to put it mildly, unenlightened.

What will they attack next? Obviously no form of knowledge or virtue is off the table. That is why sometimes, I just can't bear to look for a few days.
